Reviewed 2 February 2014

Very convenient
Go under subway to mrt
Or via exit 2 to country stations and Don Muang airport
Adequately clean, hot water good
Morning coffee good too, did not eat in cafe
Modest price so hardly a place for romance in style but fine for what it is

Clean, quiet, safe and good location at a budget price. MRT (Metro 0.70$-1.00$) station right outside of the hotel allowing you to connect with BTS Skytrain (0.90$) as well. Central train station 200 meters across the street to get around and outside the country. Several convenient bus (0.45$) routes stop 10 meters from hotel. A short taxi (2.50$) or tuk-tuk (5.00$) ride to Khao San Rd. As good as it gets if you need to move a lot around the city. Good restaurants and street food on main and surrounding streets and a 10 minute walk to Chinatown for an even more impressive food selection and markets.

Room Tip: room 205 was a single bed with shower, toilet, cable Tv and Safety deposit box. Fairly quiet

As other reviewers have noted, this hostel is new, excellently located and a good bargain. This review reminds the unwary traveler of another aspect of travel in a strange country, that probably applies to all establishments, not just the one under review. If, for any reason, you find yourself in a quarrel with the management, it can get very scary, very fast. And since you probably don't know the local language and regulations, you will imagine the worst. The fuse of the management in Hua Lamphong was, in my case, a very short one, and I was threatened with Police action almost at the start of the argument. It made my blood run cold then, and even now would make me think twice about staying anywhere that I could not argue my case with the police in the local language. We foreign travelers are never as far as we would like to think, from being Locked Up Abroad.

Room Tip: Lift is slow, so a lower floor might be quicker

Stayed here after a long haul flight to Bangkok. Super easy to find, it's the last stop if you travel on their underground (MRT) it's also a 30 second walk to the main train station for travelling around the adjoining Asian countries (We got the train to the Poipet border for Cambodia)! The staff are really friendly and helpful, giving good directions and places to visit. Clean rooms, nice common room and if you're feeling lazy then they do good food too :) it was a little noisy at night, but that's to be expected in a capital city. We were so tired from the flights that it didn't affect us much though. Good value for money too

This review is a bit late, but Hua Lamphong Hostel is such a Gem, I can't go without sharing our experience there with others. I thought I had written this review earlier, my husband and I travelled to Bangkok in January and February 2011 as part of a journey through South East Asia.
We stayed at Hua Lamphong at the beginning of our trip and again at the end. We seriously could not have asked for anything better! The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming, always greeting you with a smile and happy to help you find your way through the maze of Bangkok.
We booked a private room with an en suite bathroom. The shower is typical SE Asian styles meaning it drains onto the floor of the bathroom; wasn't hard to get used to at all and surprisingly the water was relatively contained. The room was great- comfy bed, TV with international news, desk for writing back home, Wi-Fi and even a little balcony looking out to the street. Traffic was crazy but we didn't hear a peep through the sliding doors.
There's a restaurant on the main floor of the hostel, SUUUUPER good food, we still rave about it to this day (yes, 2 years later). When we were there, the food was prepared by a nice Thai lady who also cooked and fed her family there (so you know it's good!). Beautiful little garden patio for eating outdoors with an eclectic collection of furniture and books in multiple languages. They also serve cold beer for a price we couldn't beat anywhere else in Bangkok. Public computers with reliable internet connection on the main floor for very reasonable rates. Location is ideal; a few feet away from the metro (public transit) and right across the street from Hua Lamphong train station for train journeys elsewhere in the country. Very close to the Chao Phraya river as well.
We recommended this cute boutiquey hostel to a few friends who have since travelled to Thailand and they had excellent experiences as well. If we ever go back to Bangkok, it's safe to say we'll be staying again at Hua Lamphong! Thank you for a WONDERFUL stay :D

We stayed here twice and both times the rooms were spot on. It's right next to the train station and MRT line. It's about 5 stops away from Siam Square and 7 stops from the airport link. The rooms were spacious,clean and good value. The rooms had aircon, TV, a fridge and even roomservice. The relax and TV room are the common area and downstairs is a little restaurant. There is Free Wifi as well. The perfect spot to explore Bangkok or on your way to/from the airport.

Great location - Good food - Good Value for money - Great chill-out space - Interesting views.

Pros
Cost, location, convenience, onsite laundry, food

Cons
Privacy is questionable, doesn't feel like the most secure place to stay

Top Tip
If you find a space few hours, make use of the TV/Film/Relaxing room!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with no windows, or a room with a view. Avoid the rooms with windows and no view (see...
